Nice pics as per usual Zarniwoop.
It's been a very tiring day with the heat and humidity here.
A bit of heavy rain on a couple of occasions but it didn't last more than a few minutes

Lots of laughs in the watering hole tonight with the most innocent of folk declaring that they were really hot in bed last night and didn't get a wink of sleep.
I suspect tonight may well go the same way.

DX - good news

For your information TSR2,I was a fully qualified referee in some of the highest leagues for quite a few years.
Then you will know better than most that all Premier League Referees know the laws of the game backwards.

Like you, I am an ex-fully qualified referee.

Good news that DX, a first time fix is a rare event.

Not so good about the HF kidelies.

Nice Pics again.

Just followed los perros and it is much cooler out there, passing 22 on the way down, it's a clear night so might even get below 20 later.

Followed your Tormentas Mr D tonight as we have a friend not too far from you and she is alone with four hysterical Labradors.

How high? 1st, 2nd or 3rd??

No bad decisions today just a bad team. If you say Rooney wasn't offside how about Smalling blatantly pulling Mitrovic down in the penalty area. Cancels each other out. Memphis seems to know how to dive as well!

If the Royal Shakespeare Company is ever short of actors it need only look to football for some excellent new recruits.

Don't despair Mr D.
I see from the news that the Met Office has lost it's contract with the BBC
to supply it's weather forecasts so we could be in for some much better
weather in the future.

Good morning all,

Blue, clear, the pin has dropped into 29 with a yellow for coastal wind.

Well there is much going on it seems, food first.

Senior Management has decreed a return to normal on the exterior after Petrid has completed painting white, he will be back to do the ironwork next week - I have his ladders.

I think to become a member of the RSC one needs to be able to read Madam Wombat.

Morning all, heavyish rain with thunder overnight. 25.4mm since midnight.

Garage roof has sprung a leak. Rubberoid roof and it looked a bit ripe in places. Do I patch it or go for a proper GRP replacement which I can then forget about?

Cracking piccies, I've never been to a proper Steam Rally, don't get them hereabouts.

Beaufort - patchwork repairs are a waste of time & money. Our flat roof extension leaked like a sieve so we got a GRP replacement 7 years ago. No sign of any leakage and guarantee still has 18 years to run so it should see me out

I used to have a cultivator similar to that Trusty in Zarniwoop's photo. Mine was a Ferrari.

Nice morning here but windy. Possibility of CBs this afternoon coming from the S which does not bode well for those at Francorchamps


Great to see that both teams of Blues won yesterday

ricardian yes I'm leaning towards that route. I've just gone to get my garden fork to dig some spuds for our Sunday lunch and there is a puddle in my garden shed which butts onto the garage/workshop. Like you, weather is a factor as it can get a bit wild here in Winter. Wondering about the cost, I had a figure of around 5k in my mind but can't remember where I got that from. Dimensions are 26' x 10'.

I gave duff gen. re the gannets, apparently they feature on Wednesday's show of 'The Big Blue'.

beaufort1 - our GRP roof was about 5m x 5m and the job included removal of old roof and then, when the roof had been replaced, dry lining of the room below with 4 inches of insulation in the walls & roof plus new electric wiring for wall lights & power sockets etc. Total about 10K
